Re: FML general thread [8]

I'm not feeling particularly good these last couple of days, mainly because I can't stop thinking about the nonsense that's been going on lately Let#s try and put a little bit of perspective on this. When I was about your age, the "nonsense going on lately" was the sabre-rattling of the C...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Having not picked up anything from the Winter season, nor even watched more than half a dozen episodes of the one Autumn season show I was nominally following, I broke my drought by caving and watching the first part of Washio Sumi . Having read the LN around the time that YuYuYu was airing, the ani...

From the vaults

After World Order's 2012 was linked in the music thread , it occurred to me to wonder whether there was a vocaloid rendition of any of their material. Well, I found one video, but not done the way I thought it would be... Eventually (a year or so later) a Vocaloid cover was indeed done , to complem...

Re: Not Liking Eva and its Emotional Connection

From Day One, I was aware that my experience of the series was an intensely personal one, and that others, perhaps more well adjusted than I, would find it mere entertainment. Such folk I could dismiss because they just didn't "get it". Also, in the immediate aftermath, as a general anime ...

Re: Everything is Rockin'! [RML Thread 4]

We now have a brand new, leak-free garage roof. And most importantly, we no longer have the old corrugated asbestos one that had been there for about 55 years. The roof had developed a sag over the years, so that a puddle would form, and drip through, to the extent that a washing-up bowl placed unde...

The books (or at least the first three, the ones that I've read) aren't bad space opera, even if there is one bit near the climax where conservation of angular momentum gets taken out behind the barn. It sounds like the adaptation is being a credible one.

> Episode 03: The Phone That Doesn't Ring / A Transfer As noted above, the awkward gear-shift from the introduction. The one-time-only accumulation of fan-girls for the super-robot pilot, something that went nowhere fast, being one of those awkwardnesses. Going straight to episode 4's "had enou...

Re: Anyone else feel dislike towards EoE nowadays?

After watching it twice on consecutive days, immediately after completing the series, I've never found the inclination to rewatch it since, even though I now have the BD release should the eventuality ever arise. Part of that is that those first viewings were absolutely brutal, and I don't expect th...

Re: [Poll] What episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion do you like and dislike?

While Dance etc etc is down there, actually it was episode 3 that I finally voted as worst -- it's an awkward transition from the double episode introduction into the longer story. At the top, episode 11, where there's a sense that things are coming together, even if it is only briefly so, in the end.

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

Sohryu Asuka Langley, of course. She is the one who comes closest to being the innocent victim even in the original series alone, without having a movie that sets out to kerb-stomp her.

Re: A question about Rei's physical appearance

Sufficient of the SEELE/GEHIRN/NERV activity was public enough for Yui's fate to trigger a public scandal -- remember the newspaper articles shown in one or other of the flashback sequences (episode 16?).
